TitleRESEARCH ASSOCIATE* URBAN PHYSICS MODELING
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerFraunhofer IBP
LocationGermany, Bavaria, Near Munich
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, December 01, 2020
Description:
This announcement concerns a job opening in the framework of a recently launched 
project on urban physics modeling. The project’s purpose is to predict the 
environmental impact of the built environment. In particular, you will be 
researching the CFD-based simulation of microclimate, focusing on reducing energy 
consumption in buildings and mitigating urban heat island effects in major cities 
in Europe and Asia.

Tasks:
- Work in a collaborative environment while showing initiative and autonomy
- Quickly become a reference point in the project for meso- or microscale modeling 
of urban climate
- Plan, implement and maintain outdoor climate monitoring systems
- Analyze, visualize and interpret large spatio-temporal data files produced by 
measurement, remote sensing or numerical simulation
- Publish research results in leading journals, present results at national and 
international conferences, and work with industry to test and evaluate research 
results
- Contribute to writing proposals, securing funding and leading research projects 
and tasks

Required qualifications/skills:
- A completed university degree in Meteorology, Geographic Sciences, Environmental 
Engineering, Mechanical / Thermal Engineering, or a related field
- Doctorate preferred, MSc with several years of relevant experience will also be 
considered
- Good knowledge of advanced scientific programming (e.g., Python, Fortran, C/C++, 
R, MATLAB/Simulink)
- A sound understanding of the basic physics of flow and turbulence, 
thermodynamics and statistics, preferably applied to the urban climate and/or the 
built environment
- Fluency in verbal and written English

Desired qualifications/skills:
- Experience in mesoscale (especially WRF including UCM) and microscale (e.g., 
ENVI-met or PALM-4U) climate modeling software as well as GIS software (e.g., 
QGIS)
- Knowledge of the Linux operating system and of high-performance computing
- Prior publications in peer-reviewed journals

The applicant should provide a comprehensive CV including the contact details of 
at least two references (one of whom must be the thesis supervisor), as well as a 
cover letter addressing the main requirements of the position.

2-year contract. Renewal possible.
39 hours per week.

Appointment, remuneration and social security benefits based on the public-sector 
collective wage agreement (TVöD).

In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled 
candidates. We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the 
third gender.
